|Do you see how shiny my hair is? Let me tell you about it...|
My darling Kiki-bananas came to visit this weekend so I could help her put some bride of frankenstein highlights in her hair. While we were at Sally's picking up bleaching treasures, I treated myself to a few new beauty items and I'm sure glad I did.

- Ardell Invisiband Eye Lashes - Demi Luvies I get asked a lot what kind of eyelashes I use, and here they are! These lashes are amazing. I used to only use cheap drug store lashes because I didn't see the point in anything fancy, but these babies are a game changer. The band they're on is super soft and pliable, so they bend with your lids. I used to always have a problem with drug store lashes where they would pop off my lid on the corners of my eyes by the end of the night, but that's not a problem with the invisiband lashes. I've actually fallen asleep with them on (not on purpose) and they were still in place and looking great the next day.
- Boar Bristle Teasing Brush Let me start this out by saying that when it comes to hair, for me, the bigger the better. While walking around looking at stuff I saw this teasing brush and it blew my mind (I'm super simple, I know). I have a rat tail teasing comb that I adore, but just looking at this thing I KNEW it was going to be amazing, and I was right. I tried it out as soon as we got home and with just a few back combing strokes my hair was standing straight up off my head. No hairspray involved. Brilliant.
- Brazilian Tech Keratin Smoothing Shampoo & Brazilian Tech Deep Penetrating Conditioning Treatment the first thing I said when we walked into Sally's was that I wanted something that would make my hair more shiny without making it greasy. I've been super bummed lately because my hair has been looking really dull and I was worried that it had something to do with the hair dye I've been using, but I REALLY like the color and didn't want to have to change it again. I bought the sample size of these because too often I've bought new shampoo and liked it OKAY but not enough to finish the whole bottle. Scroll back up real quick and look at the picture of me and Kiki again. See how shiny my hair is? That is NOT normal for me and is 100% because of this shampoo and conditioner. I fully plan on buying the full size of these and recommending it to all of my friends.
- Ion Dry Shampoo okay, this is my favorite. They were out of the dry shampoo that I normally get and I was super bummed about it because I was pretty loyal to that stuff, but this is seriously so much better. You know how most dry shampoo either has a powerful flower scent, or you can get the fragrance free kind that, let's be real, still smells like baby powder? THIS stuff smells like CANDY! WATERMELON CANDY! AND it doesn't leave white in your hair. Not only can I not see any powder in my hair when I use it, but it doesn't dull the shine. It just leaves my hair looking clean and smelling sweet. I've been converted.
so that's my beauty treasure!
I'll leave you with a video that has nothing to do with anything, but it's super cute and you should really watch it:
